Fish Surfboards - What Makes Them Rip?
Global Surfboard manufacturing companies work hard to identify and categorize the models they make, and one surfboard model of note is the 7S Super Fish Surfboard range.
Fish Surfboards have become a world phenomenon in popularity not only for accomplished surfers but also those who want to lift their level to a higher point, and when only a Fish will do that job.
The basic Fish model shape shows a more hippier characteristic feature over it's counterpart, the modern day Thruster. This Hippier shape if you will, is what gives it the term Fish, and along with that shape is given a generous amount of flotation, and it is inherently wider, and also made thicker than a Thruster style surfboard.
This extra size has opened up a new world of surfing for the bigger surfer as well, when flotation then becomes a lesser problem and Fish boards can be set up as twins or quads can handle a variety of wave size being bumpy or smooth, and in the hands of an expert. Even quick suckey waves.
One Fish surfboard is at the fore front of the Fish surfing world, and is is the model known as 7S Super Fish, and a model for the big blokes the 7S Super Fish XL.
This brand 7S is constructed in regular polyurethane fiber glass, and also the acclaimed Epoxy finished models that are super lightweight, and very durable,
The 7S secrets are that this style of board has the "step deck design", which gives this Fish design model and that also gives them a high buoyancy advantage, but this factor doesn't interfere with the inbuilt high performance rail design. To add insult to injury it doesn't stop there, when the bottom of the board features low entry rocker that flows into a full length concave, to help get the best out of full rail turns.
This 7s Super Fish board can help you make sections that you never have before, it is as smooth as it is fast.
The manufacture points to note is that they are glassed with 2 x 4 oz deck and 1 x 4 oz bottom with an extra 4oz patch around the fin area. The boards come in a silky smooth Gloss Polish finish in the Poly models, or Gloss Painted finish in the Epoxy models, and they all come standard with FCS M7 Quad Glass-flex Series fins.
